About Us Like
many great artists, writers and travelers before us, we have fallen
in love with Tuscany and made it our home. Tuscan Trails is our
way of sharing some local secrets with interested travelers. We
offer travelers authentic experiences in places free of crowds,
but rich in beauty and flavor. Every one of the staff at Tuscan
Trails carries with them a deep passion for the region, and our
goal is to expose travelers to parts of Tuscany, which are a little
less traveled and a little more real.
Tuscan Trails was created and is currently operated by Todd Bolton.
Todd’s interest in wine began over 15 years ago, and has continuously
grown since. He formalized his interest in wine by studying with
the Associazione Italiana Sommeliers, (the premier Italian national
program designed to educate and train wine stewards in Italy) and
he earned the Sommelier title in fall of 2004. Todd’s university
studies focused on forestry, ecology and cultural anthropology,
earning an M.A. in Cultural Anthropology and Land Management issues.
Today he lives in Florence with his wife, and when he can, he spends
his free time traveling, biking, and of course sharing bottles of
wine with friends and loved ones!
